[TPU] Intel Chipset to Finally Embed a USB 3.0 Controller

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Internal presentation slides sourced by Heise show that the Panther Point chipset, which drives Intel's Ivy Bridge processors, embeds a 4-port XHCI compatible USB 3.0 SuperSpeed controller. The controller sits aside two EHCI USB 2.0 controllers, and shares 4 ports over a USB hub. So, out of the 14 USB ports from the chipset, 4 will be SuperSpeed capable.

Panther Point is the codename of Intel's 7-series platform controller hub (PCH) chipset, which could carry the common market model names P77 and H77.

So, would you say there's a chance that the 7 series chipset will remain with Socket 1155, or do you guys think that Intel will release another Socket to go along with it?

Why does vista not get usb 3 support but 7 does? I thought the difference between them was minimal, I understand xp, but giving vista the boot seems more 7 marketing then technology limitation...

But I though that Ivy Bridge would be utilising the X68 chipset? Or is Socket 2011 going to be using H77/P77? But wouldn't that mean that for the H77 chipset you'd need integrated graphics...which Socket 2011 processors won't have, considering it's the enthusiast platform?

There is no information when Intel's USB 3.0 integration will be available, but Heise speculates that Panther Point could be announced as series 7 chipsets at CES 2012.
So it won't be coming out with Ivy Bridge later this year...unelss Ivy Bridge is released next year?

It is, I'm betting Microsoft want some major difference between Vista and 7 to get the rest of the Vista users to 7.

Ivy Bridge is on socket 2011 and Socket 1155, it's the 22nm shrink of Sandy Bridge, for some reason everyone thinks its only the enthusiast Sandy Bridge.

Ivy Bridge will be on 1155 but I've heard that it requires their next generation chipset (aka P77) to work. If that's true current P67/1155 owners won't be able to upgrade without buying a new motherboard.

Pretty par for the course for Intel to be honest. I didn't upgrade to a Q6600 because I don't trust the 45nm fab process.
